Reflections on the Life of Tom Webster

After serving the Trisagion Prayers of Mercy for the Departed for Tom (Thomas) Webster, Fr. Matthew Howell offers his reflections on lessons learned from Tom’s life. Tom Webster was a founding and longstanding member of St. John Orthodox Cathedral in Eagle River. He died on Wednesday December 2; he took a nap in the afternoon and woke up with the Lord.  He had many friends at St. Herman Church who gathered to pray for his soul the day after his death. This service was different than the funeral served at St. John Cathedral on December 8. Funeral Booklet for Tom Webster (Dec. 8, 2021)
